Eugene Field (1850-1895) was an American journalist and writer, and much beloved for his childhood poetry.  Published posthumously, this volume includes the childhood favorite, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, and others: Fiddle Dee-Dee; The Naughty Doll; Lady Button-Eyes; and The Sugar-Plum Tree. The printing plate is from the last poem, The Sugar-Plum Tree, and includes the title in all capital letters: “But up in that tree sits a chocolate cat, and a gingerbread dog prowls below—“.  The illustrations are in the highly stylized Art Deco mode; the illustrator(s) is not identified by the publisher.
